Life’s Little Pleasures

There are so many in any given day. That sometimes we forget to take a moment, pause, breathe them into every cell of our bodies. This connects us to out bodies, our soul and our intuition. Listen to these and your life will be full of grace.

This morning I woke up so grateful. I want to share what I call life’s little pleasures.

the moment to come off a bolster (the foam roller) after lying on it – getting a little balance.

You come off and you take a moment to breathe and connect. Lying and melting onto the floor.

The coffee my hubby brings me in the morning.

coffee

The clean bed sheets – the moment you slide between them.

The grass under your feet. Enjoying the moisture of the dew. Connecting to Mother Earth.

When a baby stares into your eyes and your souls connect.

When you stare into your beloved eyes or children’s eyes and your soul smiles. That feeling of love emanates from all your cells.

When you are sharing a meal at the dinner table.  Celebrating community.

When you watch a preview of a movie and you decide that you will go an see it.

Deciding on your next holiday time.

holiday - life's little pleasuresLife’s little pleasures. They may be little because they take no time or energy but they are huge and impactful. They nourish your soul and connect you back to the body and the present moment. This is also a moment to pause, breathe in the essence of you and receive.

The moment is “life’s little pleasure”.

I’m been thinking of how disconnection from our bodies and intuition causes illness.  If only we could take a pause every now and again and enjoy “life’s little pleasures”

Practices that can increase Life’s Little Pleasures

So I want to share some practices that I share with clients.  Here’s one to connect to your body.

Take a foam roller and lie on it.  Notice what happens the moment to come off a bolster (the foam roller) after lying on it – getting a little balance.

Take a moment to breathe and connect. Lying and melting onto the floor.

This moment is “life’s little pleasure”.

Try it – let me know what you think.

Id love to know your “life’s little pleasures”

Namaste 🙏

Exquisite ❤️

The number one illness of today is “immediacy”.

Yes that’s right – the need for immediate results!

This combined with so many choices, which actually should be freeing, creates anxiety, stress and energy deficiencies.  I see this in simple decision making processes I put to my clients. Totally unaware of the anxiety they are experiencing because there are so many choices.

It’s because we can achieve immediate results that spurs us on to want everything now.  For example, Google anything, phone anyone, talk to the world – all great things but has trained us to want things now.

So what am I seeing because of this? As a Medical Intuitive, I see clients for all sorts of illness, energy disturbances – spikes and lows, anxiety, lack of clarity, relationships  and the list goes on.

elephant-1005475_1920

Clue: WHY?

But one thing they all have in common is that their expectations don’t equal their reality.

One reason is that sometimes the results wanted are not possible with the effort required and the effort committed. A disparity.

Because here’s the thing – if it’s energetic, the body adapts. Everyone adapts at different rates. So if results aren’t immediate, so then why bother.

If you tapped into your own ability to learn, release, adapt and just focus on this, with compassion, awareness and belief – as well as taking inspired action, you would eventually get the results you desire.

Clue: ONE STEP AT A TIME

Take the marathon for instance. You can’t wake up tomorrow and decide you want to do a marathon today. Not possible – your body, mind and soul would rebel. This is such a parable for life and an amazing learning curve.

The same goes for any worthwhile project. Weight loss, Qualifications or Buying your Home. All take time.

But with planning, execution and inspiration – one step at a time – you CAN and WILL achieve anything.

My message is to take the stress out of life. Acknowledge your reality and work on your expectations. Do the work. What are the steps you can take and then what are the steps you need to take in order to achieve your desired results. Possible/probable?

path forward

I know anything is possible. I see miracles daily. When you work out your unique path, the magic will happen – your path will light up.

    I often remind myself to live in the moment and be present. One cannot go back in the past to fix or change things. We must learn lessons from the past as well as allow a release from the bondage of hurts and regrets.

Part 5: Vibrations – How They Affect Your Business!

How a Vibrational Tune Up Helped Create a Successful Launch

I had a client come to me for a vibrational tune up. She was in the middle of a launch and we cleared some beliefs that lead to an increase in client attraction.

People come to see me at all stages of business and this particular client was in the middle of a launch for a new product.

The client had put all their ducks in a row before they came to see me. They had hired a coach for systemisation, they’d hired a coach for copy writing. Everything seemed to be set up and ready to receive customers. Everything was systemised, they knew how many clients they needed to get.

Screen Shot 2015-03-07 at 9.04.04 PM

From a left brain trained perspective it was all clear and ready.

I was privy to the launch process, before we got on the call, and I felt in the energy of the emails that came through – I thought to myself “she doesn’t believe it – she does not believe in herself”.

When I asked my higher power and her higher power, I realised she wasn’t going to get the sales.

It wasn’t going to go through as anticipated.

I asked her how she was going and she confirmed she wasn’t getting the sales.

Being intuitive, I know those things, I get downloads.

She was really struggling with having to achieve the number of intended sales.

In our Vibrational Tune UP we cleared a lot of limiting beliefs.

pinky-swear-329329_1280

I questioned it, are these beliefs true? What is true?

Clearing beliefs can be as easy as – saying I am now clearing old beliefs.

But the first part is being aware – what they are?

And we only clear when we’re ready to clear and we can see what we need to clear.

You know what you know until you know something different.

So it’s about going through the process of where that belief actually came from.

We get to the source of the belief system.

 

gifts

Once we clear that from your cells your soul can shine again.

That’s what happened with her.

What she did on the call and the way she had shifted on a cellular level were releasing.

After the call, when enquiries came through, she was able to enter conversations from pure heart, not from a fear base.

Coming from pure heart and a desire to see how she could see how she could be of service to her clients.

And that was a paradigm shift. An energetic (vibrational) shift that will help in her business always.

 

A shift of sacred generosity, so the entrepreneur can say “yay, here I am, this is what I can do”
And from that – she is flying

She’s on her third launch now – I’m so excited for her, her business and the people she can help as a result.

Maria Davis is a Medical Intuitive and Prosperity Coach who helps women in transition and are experiencing transformational shifts, ie: old patterns running the show, self limiting beliefs, anxiety, physical and emotional pain.

She works with entrepreneurs who are ready to launch themselves into the world with product, service or online course.   If you want to be seen, be visible and be noticed, then Maria’s Vibrational Tune Up Session is a must. Vibrate at a frequency with permission to become “the attractor factor”.

Disconnection

Screen Shot 2015-02-03 at 5.35.39 PMI was so disconnected that I did not hear my soul calling.

I am left brain trained and worked in an environment that everything had to be checked and cross checked before it became law.

I am talking about working for the government in a grey building with layers of shoulds and should nots. The brain was trained, the body followed, patterns were established.

Working from the heart and knowing, was not part of the scenario – it was proof and facts, not airy fairy type intuitive information.

The dichotomy was that I was a Business Intuitive back then too. Even with all this training of my left brain to follow the rules, and not think outside of them too much. It was still my role to go into a meeting and read the energies and report back on the intentions of all present.

Screen Shot 2015-02-03 at 4.39.49 PMWow – that seems like a crazy time.

I could not always explain what my role was, but I knew that I was making a difference to the process of making laws, using my gifts as an intuitive.

Fast forward 20 years, after 2 beautiful children and a solid soul relationship with my husband.

I know work with the heart and heart wisdom, all the intuitive systems that are hardwired in there. Miraculous really!

The heart intelligence, integrated with the brain intelligence and the consciousness of patterns, birth a joyous, fun and blissful life.

Why am I telling you this?

Because this morning I was reminded from a beautiful gentle soul, who graciously and generously came to me to remind me of what the heart intelligence really means.

Together, we breathed into our hearts. Magic

The magic is in the witnessing.

All those years of training my heart to be less intuitive, less feeling and less active have actually supported my heart, brain and soul intelligence to integrate to a stronger more profound essence, where I am at the most peace and enjoying the experiences I have today with a bountiful exuberance

It really is a joyous and simple life – the remembering is the hard part – the joy is in the being.

And so it is . . .

Go forth and feel the feelings (heart intelligence) hear your thoughts (brain intelligence) listen to your guidance (spiritual connection).

No longer am I disconnected from my body. With this new consciousness, come an awareness. Every message, feeling, and thought is acknowledged, welcomed and processed.

Life is easy, we sometimes just complicate it.

Stay in your heart – it wont steer you wrong.

If you are struggling, just like I was, let’s have a chat.

Healing and Life Drawing

What does healing have to do with drawing? You might ask.

Creativity and Healing?  Is there a parallel or inverse relationship between the two?  You bet!

So I have found that I really wanted to do something creative for years.   As luck or synchronicity would have it, an art studio opened up around the corner from my home about 3 years ago. I have been in, collected biz cards to make a time. But never actually got round to going in and doing a class.  The intention was there but something stopped me.   That is until today. I drove past and there was a sign out that said “today life drawing 1-4pm”.  Today was the day.  I was ready to explore this parallel of creativity and healing.

healing through creativity

I walked into the studio – an absolute novice and jumped in. There was a life model, posing for us, in position for us to create.  I started at the beginning, became grounded and then created.  Whilst dissecting the model, I felt it was not unlike what I do with energies and anatomy. I started to look at patterns and shades. Actually cool when you just stay present without expectation. It is healing in itself. Just being – without judgement of self or others. It just felt good. Exploring the right brain creativity in such a different setting to the norm.

Effect: Relaxed my nervous system

I am so thrilled with the results. I found that it totally relaxed my nervous system too. By the end of the session, my breathing was slow and methodical – just the sweeps of the charcoal I was using.

healing and creativity

It was delightful to be in a room with people who were just present and focused on the life drawing, creating, enjoying, being. There was a synergy in the room.

Feeling disconnected or frazzled?

So next time you feel disconnected or just frazzled with life, do something creative and play – no expectations – just fun.

How do you relax your nervous system? What fun things do you do regularly?

If you would like to heal through creativity, find something fun to do – something that nourishes your soul.

The Art of Receiving

This year has been a year of abundance. Abundance and prosperity comes from within.

The art of receiving is something that I am learning along the way. It is not a natural state for me. However, the art of giving is more than natural, it was my modus operandi. To the point of over giving and then becoming depleted.

Does this resonate?

This year it finally clicked that the art of giving, without the art of receiving is actually creating a deficiency in my energetic loop and depleting me from the inside out.

the key

Unless I opened myself to receive, I could not give anymore. Oh my, this created a whole energetic, paradigm shift. I sat with this, fought with this and finally decided that if I was going to succeed in business, this was something I had to tackle with clarity, assuredness and observation.

The learning curve was beginning and more importantly the significant shift in identity was about to take place.

Once this penny dropped, I was on a mission. I started to look for guidance. I googled.

giving and receivingOne of the first insights into this world of receiving came from a Denise Duffield Thomas, also known as Lucky Bitch. She had a free audio on her website which I devoured. I also downloaded her book – Get Rich, Lucky Bitch. Then I was lucky enough to go along to a one day mastermind with Denise, herself in March last year. This just proved to me that she was sharing a journey that I was just embarking on. However, she had been on the journey and was on the other side. So many insights.

I came home from that one day and purchased Denise’s Lucky Bitch Bootcamp.

The bootcamp itself is paradigm shifting as she gives a lot of great value, including subtle energetic shifts which happen along the way. Yes, your thoughts about receiving do change.

transformation, abundance, propserityMy journey thus far has included becoming open to receive from a generous space. My self-esteem has increased. I can actually write this now. “I serve, I deserve.” In retrospect, it does start with opening your heart to yourself, but when I was first beginning, I wasn’t aware of this small but fundamental detail. Prosperity can only come from within.

Coming from a place of service and having the innate ability of closing the chasm between giving and receiving will only enhance your mission and open you up to potential and possibilities.

If you are ready to choose both giving and receiving as an energetic complete loop which will fill your heart and your world with your desires, then I highly recommend sourcing guidance. This program and the community is wonderful and can lead to paradigm shifts which indeed can make you a lucky rich bitch too.

Here’s to raising the prosperity consciousness of all the generational change agents and women entrepreneurs in the world.

What is Prosperity?

prosperity consciousness

Is it having enough money in your life?

Is it having enough love in your life?

Is it doing everything you want, when you want – you know, choices and freedom to choose?

What exactly is prosperity in your life?

It is anything that makes you feel safe, joyous and cup half full type of feeling. I want to say “satiated on all levels”. Mind, body and soul.

Years ago (the old me), prosperity actually meant having it all, money, time, love and security. Whatever that meant. How did I quantify it?  This was before I really dug deep and evaluated my life.

Well, in my wisdom, I found that there is never enough money, never enough time and never enough hugs. Until I became curious and started to really tap into the prosperity in my life. After some serious trauma and cathartic processes – I mean life changing – I know now that prosperity exists from the inside/out.

prosperity consciousness

 

What makes me feel prosperous?

My family being happy

prosperity consciousness

  • The colors in the garden
  • The time I can spend with my friends
  • Doing what I love
  • Small things daily

Recently I was at a workshop and one of the exercises was to dissect and list your perfect day. I was blown away. I live my perfect day almost everyday. It was such a cool realization.

Core Desired Feelings

As prosperity comes from within – one of the main focus was to identify what I really wanted to feel on a daily basis. Then make my decisions accordingly. If I could feel these feelings then the decision was in alignment with my core values.   Danielle La Porte writes about core desired feelings in her book “The Desire Map”. Knowing what you desire opens your awareness so your daily decisions are synchronistic and aligned. Making you feel prosperous from the inside/out.

Inspired Action

Know that you are worth it. Whatever it is? There are no rules. If you live life in flow, then inspired action is effortless. As you know from your core, that whatever you are doing is worth it. For example, meditation was very hard for me as my monkey mind was very active. Five years ago, I promised that I would start with 5 secs a day. And so my meditation began. This was two fold – not only did I feel I was worth it (that 5 secs a day) but also I got the benefit of the theta healing which occurred during this time. Yes, 5 secs works. It is a start and then it grew to 30 mins daily. I love the space the meditation gives me. Space leads to clarity, energy and direction. 

Self Actualization

According to Maslow’s Law of Hierarchy – if you think, it shall be true. If you focus your thoughts of scarcity day in, day out – this is what you will receive. Focus your thoughts on prosperity and what it means to you – your heart will open, energetically to having more of what you desire. In my work, I find that most people who come to me – know what they don’t want but don’t know what they want. Focus on what you want in your life and don’t be afraid to ask. The law of attraction offers us many examples to prove that the more you focus on something the more it eventuates.

So what does prosperity mean to you?

prosperity consciousness

If you want to develop your prosperity, I have developed a workshop, Developing Prosperity Consciousness Workshop, all geared to you becoming Prosperous and Conscious. This is a full day immersion program in mind, body and soul.  Come along and delete, transmute old beliefs, self sabotaging patterns and be introduced to effortless practices which will open your heart to prosperity within.

Feeling too tired & stressed out to transform?

I just spoke to my friend, Andrew. He was dogging on himself for putting on weight. In the same breath he was telling me about how tired he was and it just seemed too hard to do anything about the weight. The conversation continued with “if only I could relax my mind, not be so stressed then maybe I wouldn’t feel so tired!”.

Bingo

Yes that is it, but “how?????”.

I was like this, and I so relate.

best-friends

Here are 3 quick tips towards transformation:-

1. Delete – Could, Should, Would

Delete “could” “should” “would” out of your vocabulary.  This in itself changes the expectations which in turn lower the idea of failing. Fear is an acronym for false experiences appearing real – I like to substitute expectations for experiences ie. false expectations appearing real.

2. Mirror Work

Start to do your mirror work – say  “I love you” while staring in the mirror. This is not easy to start with you but do it for your soul not your physical self. Stare into those “baby blues, mysterious brown, ocean green or whatever color your eyes are” and start to really see your soul. It is calling for you to be kind and compassionate to the real you.

3. Breathe in life force

Start with 5 seconds – put your timer on. Yes 5 seconds only. Start to feel your breath (the energy of life) enter your body and then become curious how it navigates and respires (inspires) your cells.

You ask how will this lead to weight loss, less stress or even transformation.  You may see some weight loss on the scales eventually.   But it the most profound impact, these practices will have is to lead to you feeling a lot lighter, shielding yourself from the heaviness of your heart and soul. This lightness comes into your physical cells becoming more accepting of you.

prosperity consciousness

I am that I am – comes to mind.

State of mind and peace in your soul will propel you towards your goals, whatever they might be.

Let me know what inspired action you have taken lately to change or transform you! Thank you for reading.

If you are in Melbourne and are ready for transformation towards “developing prosperity consciousness” come and play at this unique experiential cell shifting, mind enhancing, soul inspiring, workshop  – developed with you in mind.

    It seems too simple when laid out like that, doesn't it? No wonder people resist. Then again, perhaps what they're resisting is the daunting prospect of being present with themselves. Simple, not always easy, especially when come up against false expectations & experiences.

    Hey Maria! 'One of those things I have been meaning to do for ages' is meditate. I have been doing it on and off, Meditation, Ha breathing, Qi Gong,love em all and always always feel great during and after. I'm doing a 60 day challenge to the end of the year, and daily conscious meditation is a part of it. As so the words- yes, couldn't agree more. It's like being punched in the stomach every time I hear someone say those words to me, in usually stressy tones and I just have to walk away. I love mirror work and smile at myself, and honour myself first thin gin the morning. A little me time goes a long way! Thanks for this Maria and heave fun at the workshop!

    Funny, I have been on this path for some time now, knowing that my blocks to weight loss have a deeper source. I have never truly believed in a simple 'calories in, calories out' model. I believe we can get stuck in negative thinking and that does as much damage as any donut. Thank you for sharing this with a larger audience.
